Originally planned for 2021 and postponed due to the pandemic, the 16th edition of the Biennale de Lyon titled manifesto of fragility opened after two and a half years of extensive research and preparation with 40 diverse institutional partners in Lyon and abroad.
The exhibition curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, Directors of the Hamburger Bahnhof – National Gallery for contemporary Art in Berlin, presented the exhibitions at 12 venues in Lyon, including several of the city’s museums, as well as abandoned sites such as the former Fagor Factory of 29.000 sqm, and the building of the former Guimet Museum, opening again to the public after 15 years. In total, 87 contemporary artists of over 36 nationalities were invited to participate in this edition, including 26 % who live in France.
Trampoline participated in discussions with curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath during their research and contributed to this significant project on an exceptional basis in order to support artists of the French art scene, particularly the works presented by four artists :
Mali Arun • Sarah del Pino • Léo Fourdrinier • Sara Sadik
